So to all the filly lovers who proclaim they are better than the boys. Question: where are they now? The field did not over subscribe. It's because the owners and trainers were wise not to race them against the boys.
Gov C Will take charge and deny the ORB and send the T5 packin. Bet your golden cents on that. Please give us lucky day johnny v over 10.
In a nine horse field, hard to make excuses for post position, especially for a well-rounded horse like Orb. Orb can actually regress a little in the Preakness and still win. The other eight runners will have to run their best race ever just to have a shot. But that's why they run the races.
Google "Secretariat A Moment Of Eternity" if your eyes don't water up your not a true racing fan. I'm hoping for racing luck., and I'm going to Belmont on June 8 to see Orb win the Triple Crown. I wish they allowed coolers though!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How do you people have all the Past Performances in front of you to be able to predict the winners in advance? I do this for a living and have a hard time remembering things. How can you know what the pace will be? Or what the logical fractions should be? Or see the workouts and spacing of them and all other things needed to make a logical decision. I can't phathom how you all can predict who will win until the race is drawn........ I frequently see that you most all pick the losers, but to be able to pick so far in advance is just crazy. I can tell you the 3-4-5 that have no shot, but not the winner yet. I know that the bottom horse will iwn the Pimlico Special and the other speed horse will tire in the lane, but after that, I need to look a little closer. Richards kid is the class, but dislikes dirt and i would key him 3rd behind the easy winner.
How about them BOSTON BRUINS boys and girls .....
I have never heard Shug talk so confidently. Actually it worries me its almost like he is out of his element. I hope the racing gods don"t rear their ugly heads and ruin Orb"s race.
Orb will not win the triple crown. Remember, Palice Malice ruined the Kentucky Derby with those fast fractions. Just saying!!
its Orb Will take Charge EX and if not for a poor trip I belive WTC may be trying for the III crown!;)
